Fly Flatts, More Pinkies and first Redwings

 

                                                  Goldfinch both moving and blogging
                                                9 Stonechat present


                                                 as well as 5 Reed Buntings



                                       More Pink Footed Geese on the move
                                         Several skeins but mostly small












                                              Scope-able only, LH gull Yellow Legged Herring

An icy cold start to the morning with the first ground frost at 5 degrees on a NW>4 with a mix of cloud and sunshine.
                     Several small passerines blogging and moving but no sign of yesterdays Black Redstart but I,m sure they will be more. The first Redwings headed >W , probably arrived by the moderate north westerlies over the last couple of days, just a day earlier than my previous earliest record.
                  A single adult Yellow Legged Herring gull was on the far NW shore along with LBBs though they soon moved off >SW whilst the Tufted ducks have now moved on.
                 At just short of 0900 hrs the flood gates opened and skeins of Pink Footed geese piled through with 5 relatively small groups apart from 2 very distant skeins heading >W scopeing into the far distance over the Hebden Bridge/ Stoodley Pike area.
